Trojan Deer Casting

I started a new project, a life-size Trojan deer for my birds to ride around in and claim their next victim. It has been slow process. Deciding exactly how I was going to make this happen was the hard part. My dear uncle, avid hunter, let me borrow his target practice for a while. Luckily it is the off season. Above you can see me wrapping it up for protection. It was much harder than I imagined.

My friend Mary Cale helped get me started with the plaster gauze. I think her high school students are better at it than I was.
First round done.
Second round I decided to make my own gauze and in hind sight I should have just ordered more of the real stuff. I made a huge mess.
But it all worked out and released from the original without issue.

Turtle Transportation Finished

Turtle Transportation in progress

Finished Commission

I finished the piece I have been working on for my dear cousin. I finished a baby present for her not to long ago and she liked it enough to have me make one for her cousin that is expecting a baby girl. Guidelines were: Zebra print, hot pink, chartreuse, and bling. I think I got it right.

I'm spinning.

I am working on a new piece called "the new do".  I think i posted a sketch a while back. In summery, the birds sheer a sheep and make aristocratic wigs for themselves from the wool.

I needed a specific color and style for my "wigs" so I decided it wa worth making it myself. I haven't spun in years and even then didn't do it much. It took me a bit to recall the process. ( I must take time to include a shout out to the undergrad that just happened to be in the room and helped me out a bit) i was lucky enough the store (Wild Fiber) had the perfect colors i could mix. the product is chunky and uneaven but it will be perfect.

Yard sale treasures.

David and I ventured out saturday morning looking for some yard sales. It was my lucky day. A cross stitcher was cleaning out her stash. So I got a very full very organized box of floss for 20$. Wow!

Automata and mechanical toys

Just flipped through my new book, and wow, it is amazing. Wish I didn't have so much to do and could start soaking up all the goodness inside. There is much less "how to" and more contemprary history. I am too excited.
